Cozy Classics Great Expectations by Jack Wang, Holman Wang


Cozy Classics Great Expectations by Jack Wang, Holman Wang

The Cozy Classics series stages handcrafted felt puppets in scenes from classic literature and illustrates the plots of canonical texts using twelve total words per book, one word per scene, in a way that accurately and humorously summarises each book's plot. It's Great Books for toddlers and their parents--a little bit serious, a little bit ironic, and entirely funny and clever. This title takes on Charles Dickens' Victorian masterpiece: Great Expectations.


The figurines and the sets they create for their characters are amazing. --Geek Dad
